Jacob Micah Nelson
Jacob Micah was born on May 24, 1990, like his brother spent his childhood on the road touring with his father. He’s always been surrounded by music and has performed at many events such as FarmAid, Coachella, and Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit. He also performs with his father as well as brother Lucas. Know as Micah, Willie’s youngest son is an artist and a musician. His music has been described as abstract, unconventional, and futuristic. He performs as ‘Particle Kid’ and also performs with his band known as Insects Vs. Robots. His style is nontraditional and “heavily influenced by movie soundtracks”. He incorporates his visual art with his music using animation, paintings, and film. Linking his audio and visual talents seems natural to him. In the interview with Austin Man Magazine, he states, “They’re symbolically linked together, and I’m always trying to explore different ways to explore those links, just trying to find links between all of our senses, the way we’re receiving and putting out information.” Visit Micah’s website to experience his art for yourself.
Lukas Autry and Jacob Micah are forging their own way, just like their father has done over the years. Their nontraditional childhood has shaped them into the artists they are today.
